David worked as a jailer and I worked as a dispatcher when I started back in 1979. We were friends and David was a great and very nice officer. Liked by everyone. Was very sad that morning when I went to work and found out that he had been killed. DA at that time did'nt have the guts to charge the young man that forced David's patrol unit off of roadway. Will always remember and think you. God bless and God be with you.
